Loom + Slack, the major feature we've all been waiting for from Loom. Nice work team Loom =) If you aren't using Loom, why not?! It's faster than typing, it's free and it just got more awesome.

I use Loom pretty much every day, it's such an amazing communication tool, we use Slack also and always send loom links to eachother through slack so this is even better!

@susanacigano You're welcome, thanks for making Loom! we are even trying to get our customers to use it for our support instead of sending us screenshots, makes life easier

@carol_mc_keon do you know what makes my day? When our community tell us that they are spreading the word about Loom and asking their own customers to use quick videos 😍
Carol Mc Keon
@susanacigano well that's when you know you have something that people actually need and will actually use after the novelty has worn off eh?
David Aronica
I started using Loom to send short videos to our prospects to quickly demonstrate new and improved workflows. After some early results, the rest of my team caught on and now loves using Loom. This integration only makes its easier for us to share these videos and best practices!

Hey Product Hunt folks! πŸ‘‹πŸ» We're thrilled to finally roll out an integration that has been requested by so many of you over the past year. We've worked closely with our friends over at Slack these past few months to make this happen and are excited that it's finally being made public :-) What we're rolling out with today: πŸ–₯ Easily share your Loom videos to Slack with just a few clicks ▢️ In-line video plays (only others are YouTube and Vimeo!!!) πŸ–Œ Newly revamped homepage πŸ‘€ Record videos with a custom avatar βœ… Seamless Onboarding experience It's been a fun ride. Loom has come a long way. And the Product Hunt community is one of the main reasons we're here today. Since our debut on Product Hunt 2 years ago this week, Loom now has over 600,000 users in 21,000+ cities around the world recording over half a million videos a month. Individuals use Loom to communicate internally (Team updates, Bug fixes, Design -> Eng handoffs, New employee onboarding, etc) and externally (Customer onboardings, Sales demos, Support tickets, etc). A big shout out to the Loom team for making this possible and to the Slack team for enabling Loom's users to be more successful directly in Slack. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have and we'll respond to them throughout the day :) Upward and Onward πŸš€

@_shahedk Wow, you guys have done a ton since I first tried this out a year ago. This is perfect timing to rediscover the product because I'm updating my product demo and always dread cobbling it together in iMovie. When / how are you going to start charging? Will the current feature set always be free? To anyone that tried Loom when it first launched and didn't quite get hooked on it, give it another shot, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Excellent. Great team-up. Next can we please have it in notion?

I’ve been using Loom since their fIrst debut on PH. Love, love, love the ease of use and service. Inline gmail was amazing, inline Slack is almost better.

Scott Bowler
Been using Loom for a long time now - use it all the time for recording videos for adding bug reports to github, invaluable!
Ian Russell
Maker
@scotty_bowler Probably the easiest way to describe bug reports. Using video is one of my favourite ways of distilling technical info! So happy you're loving it😊
Scott Bowler
@ian_russell Not sure if this is the best place to give feedback, but I never use the webcam and it's a HUGE pain to have to turn off the grey avatar in the bottom left corner every time I want to record a video.
Ian Russell
Maker
@scotty_bowler We're always happy to get feedback, where ever it may come from as it helps drive a better experience so thank you so much for sharing this. I'll be relaying this this directly to our team:) Completely understand the frustration here. Have you thought of adding a profile picture to replace the grey avatar - or would your preference be to not use it at all but have there be a toggle or something of the sort so if you turn it off you won't be have the grey avatar appear the next time you go to record?
Scott Bowler
@ian_russell Basically, it gets in the way. I don't need people to see my face when reporting bugs or doing a training video and it covers a significant part of the page. My suggestion would be to hide it if the webcam is turned off and allow people to turn it on, instead of forcing people to turn it off.

Love the product but please make it work on Linux - so my co-workers can use it, too. πŸ™
Ian Russell

@pbuckendorf Thanks for the support here! Just to confirm, Loom is working well on your computer right now? Linux is something we want to bring it to for sure, I just don't have a accurate ETA on when that would happen. Thanks for your continued support, we want to make it as accessible to as many people out there as possible!

I nerd so hard for Loom. Have become a bit of an evangelist. It's a brilliant tool for creating video messages when sending connection requests on LinkedIn. Wrote a piece about it: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-send-best-most-phenomenal-amazing-connection-request-amy-jones/

@lovesaveslives This is so fantastic! I loved your article. Especially the part were you mention making sure not to encroach of someones virtual personal space when creating videos, such a critical point to understand and you've got some fantastic tips here. This is such a brilliant use case for Loom. One of my favourite things working with the team is getting the chance to learn from our users. This article blew me away, its brilliant. I'd love to connect with you and chat further about how you use Loom!
